I've been a member for over a year and have been reading many of the discussions. I am wondering if menopause really has 200+ symptoms, or if some of it is just age. Or are people calling aging menopause?
The reason I question a lot of this is that I had so many of the symptoms before menopause, especially during child-bearing years.
Another thought is that aging men also have similar symptoms; hence making me think some things are simply age related.
Some of the things I've learned aging men have: headaches, pain between shoulder blades, back aches, muscle aches in general, tiredness, low energy, depression, mood swings, edginess, eye aches, vision problems, memory problems (especially, "what was I gonna do/why did I come in this room"?), fuzzy head, ear pain, itchy skin, thinning hair, UTI's, bowel problems, etc. I can go on and on, but the question is: "Is it menopause (hormone related) or just aging?" Or do men go through hormone changes also?
